RFHEE is now the Foundation for Chemistry Research & Initiatives
We’ve changed our name to the Foundation for Chemistry Research & Initiatives! Please bear with us as we work to update our web content.
What is the Foundation?
In 1995 the American Chemistry Council established the Research Foundation for Health and Environmental Effects (RFHEE), with a goal of addressing uncertainties and answering questions about chlorinated compounds - questions raised by the general public and regulatory and public health officials.
In recent years, the Foundation has supported scientific research on other chemistries; the development of training programs for the safe use and application of products; and programs demonstrating chemistry’s contribution and benefits to society.
A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Foundation supports joint projects sponsored by industry, public agencies, academia and other foundations.
